Redskins Draft Profiles: Cyril Richardson, OG

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Richardson helped Baylor average over 250 rushing per game last season. Let's see if he will have a similar impact in the pros.

Cyril Richardson


Offensive Guard


Height: 6’5"

Weight: 348

Baylor University


Strengths: Cyril Richardson is a truly mammoth human being. He has the size to move defensive linemen, and the agility to pull and block in space. He has excellent pass blocking technique, and is rarely beaten off the snap. Richardson was able to play well in one of college football’s most high-octane offenses, helping the Baylor Bears average over 600 yards a game.

Weaknesses: Cyril Richardson’s main issue is consistency. As games progress he tends to rise up in his stance, limiting the explosiveness that makes him valuable. When Richardson hits the second level, he has the bad habit of taking bad angles, allowing faster linebackers to shed his blocks more easily. In order to fulfill his position at the next level, Richardson needs to focus on playing through the whistle.

Bottom Line: Richardson should be able to contribute right away in an NFL offense. He is one of the more pro-ready guards, and has the size to hang with larger defensive linemen.

Projected Round: 2nd

Team he best fits on: The Miami Dolphins had one of the worst offensive lines in football last year. Richardson is the exact kind of plug-and-play prospect they should be looking at.
